OXBLOOD - a deep, burgundy, blackened red - brings to mind rich leather couches in a shrouded, smoke-filled room...or a model wrapped in billows of sumptuous fabrics, floating down the runway...or a designer handbag clutched at a cocktail party.

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
The color is rich and gorgeous. I expected it to have a much softer "hand". I will soften this up, but prefer using fibers with a softer hand.
Beautiful deep rich colour with great hand. Wonderful yarn.
